Two-time Bachelor Brad Womack says it's been difficult keeping his engagement to Chantemily secret this entire season. We can imagine so.

The long wait comes to an end March 14, however, and he says he can't wait to reveal his choice to the world. He's counting down the days.

"Every Monday night since January 3 has not been a good night at my house," he told People. "We will see how [my fiancee] handles it."

"I was particularly scared of the overnight, exotic date episode."

Racing Toward the Finish

The pre-season finale blitz has Brad excited, but increasingly antsy.

"It's brutal. You go on [the show], you find someone, you choose each other and then you hit pause. You can't just start the daily life stuff."

"I'm excited to move in together and go on real dates," Brad Womack adds. "My only intention [in doing the show] was to start a future."

Hard as it's been, and unclear as The Bachelor spoilers have been about the direction of the season, Brad was always sure of his choice.

Emily Maynard. Chantal O'Brien. The Bachelor spoilers have predicted one, then the other (follow the link for the most current speculation and reasoning).

Soon we will know for sure who Brad Womack chooses. Will it be Chantal, whose chemistry with him is so obvious, or Emily, the fan favorite from Day One?

THG breaks down both finalists in another edition of The Pulse ...

Who do you want to win The Bachelor, Chantal or Emily?

The Bachelor season finale is rapidly approaching and in light of the recent Bachelor spoilers we've relayed to you, Emily Maynard is coming increased scrutiny.

Is the gorgeous, sweet single mom from Charlotte hiding something? In Touch wants you to believe that, setting out to expose everything bad about Emily.

But is any of this true? And should it dissuade Brad if it were?

Tricked By Emily's Lies!

First, her "secret celebrity fling." True or not, it almost certainly happened before they met and Brad has his own past with Laurel Kagay. So, no big deal.

Second, she's a gold digger obsessed with fame? She sure doesn't act like it, and from all indications, her family and her late fiance's are QUITE well off.

Speaking of the late Ricky Hendrick (the father of her daughter Rickie), ITW claims his engagement to Emily Maynard is a sham. Okay, this is ridiculous.

Certain elements of her back story are going to be embellished by The Bachelor. It's a TV show. But this looks like nothing but a tabloid smear job to us.

Whether or not you want her to win, Emily's done nothing to suggest that she's the slightest bit disingenuous. In fact, she seems like an upstanding girl.

In any case, who do you want to win The Bachelor?

In light of The Bachelor spoilers, revealing not only the rumored winner of this season but the rumored Bachelorette this summer, last night was not a shock.

You didn't even need any spoilers to predict this outcome, honestly. With two of Brad Womack's remaining three women, there is serious chemistry going on.

With the third, it's like they had been trying too hard to make it work.

When you have to try that hard, it's not meant to be. So it goes. How did everything play out in South Africa last night? Here's THG's trademark +/- recap!

Brad Womack: Bachelor

We're not usually enamored with their choice of venues, but South Africa truly is stunning, especially in HD. You really feel like you're there in person. Plus 8.

Chantal O'Brien has put on noticeable weight this season. She looks hotter! We worry she may be a stress eater, but it doesn't look bad on her at all. Plus 5.

Wisdom from Chantal: "If I'm getting engaged to someone, the thought is that I'm planning on marrying them, not getting engaged thinking that I'm going to get unengaged." Who does she think this guy is, Jason Mesnick? Minus 7.

Speaking of, happy anniversary to Jason and Molly, who honeymooned at this very South African reserve (what are the odds). Glad they're going strong. Plus 4.

Chantal was QUITE excited about getting it on. Plus 3, but ...

The fantasy suite is an outdoor treehouse? Cool as it is that such a thing exists, that sounds like every woman's nightmare, not fantasy. Fail, Chris. Minus 6.

This evening on The Bachelor, Brad Womack takes his final three potential wives - Ashley Hebert, Chantal O'Brien and Emily Maynard - to South Africa.

There can be only one Final Rose doled out March 14, though, which means two emotional decisions await Brad before then. Two beauties must be cut.

We now know for sure who wins that final rose - and if you've been reading The Bachelor spoilers up until now, it's actually NOT who you think.

  • Chantal O'Brien Photo
  • Emily Maynard Picture

Will Brad pick Ashley (left), Chantal (center) or Emily (right)?

Last week, we reported that one of the women above would be the next Bachelorette. This still appears to be the case. But the winner of this season?

Intelligence now suggests a different conclusion to the finale than we believed to be accurate as recently as this weekend. So who's it gonna be?

Shawntel Newton is sad.

She harbors no hard feelings about being eliminated last week on The Bachelor, but she was devastated just the same. She even uses the l-word to describe it.

Here's what Shawntel had to say about taking Brad Womack to her unusual workplace, the tension with her family, who she thinks will win and more ...

Shawntel Newton

On taking Brad to work: "I thought I might as well lay my cards out on the table. This is my job. This is what I grew up around and if he wants to get down on his knee and propose, he should see what I do. It's the final test almost."

On her family's concerns: "I always thought that I would stay in Chico and take over the business. It was a shock to my family. Everything came at them at once – me saying I'm in love, I might be leaving this lifestyle in Chico, moving."

"I was falling in love so I was willing to move."

Last night on The Bachelor, four lucky women brought Brad Womack home to meet their families across this nation. Three will accompany him to South Africa.

It was quite the two-hour episode, featuring a trip to the mortuary, an awkward date with Emily's daughter and plenty of slice-of-life moments for ol' Brad.

How did last night play out? Who's going on to the final destination and whose trip home turned out to be one-way? Here's THG's trademark +/- recap!

Brad Womack: Bachelor

With no time in the mansion and no Michelle Money, that means no festering drama or cat fights this week. Plus 5. But also Minus 4, 'cause we miss you Michelle.

Minus 3 for the random, unexplained stop in New York.

Date #1 goes to Chantal O'Brien, who The Bachelor spoilers seem to think has a good chance of winning this thing. Plus 6, because you can absolutely see why.

If Brad Womack ever appears like he's natural or semi-normal, it's with Chantal. Plus 7. When they discuss moving in together, you know she has a leg up.

The Bachelor is usually all about the women doing all they can to avoid being sent home by the star. But the case of Emily Maynard, the tables are turned.

After weeks of Brad Womack wondering if he'd ever get to meet the single mom's little girl, the pair finally come face-to-face tonight. But how will it go?

While Maynard is cautiously optimistic, she's also realistic about things: "If Brad and Ricki don't mesh, it would be just like Brad and I not meshing."

Will this be the deal-breaker for Brad - or for Emily? Here's a sneak peek:

Laurel Kagay said Brad Womack popped the question to her before going on The Bachelor. He said reports of a marriage proposal were just "embellishment."

So who's telling the truth?

One of her friends, furious at Brad's "lies" and his decision to paint Laurel as "some crazy who invented it all in her head," wants to set the record straight.

Hot Brad Womack Picture

Whether he proposed or not, Brad dated Laurel for years.

"If Brad Womack didn't propose to Laurel Kagay then I'm the Queen of England," Laurel's pal wrote in a series of scathing posts on her personal blog.

In one text message to his sweetheart, which Laurel Kagay shared with Us, Womack vowed: "You're my future, Roo. Nothing is going to change that.

"Laurel, I'm serious about this. Please marry me?"

The friend said Brad even took Laurel ring shopping at a Cartier boutique - and even asked her parents for their blessing to marry their daughter!

Three of the girls on The Bachelor posed for the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue last night. As we discussed in our Bachelor recap, this was both hot and awkward.

Ashley Hebert and Chantal O'Brien certainly looked the part of SI models, but when it came time for Michelle Money's turn, she unleashed her crazy side yet again.

The bad news? Her near-topless mounting of Brad Womack drove Chantal to tears and made viewers queasy. The good news? It ultimately ran her out of town.

Here's the SI swimsuit issue shoot in its sexy, uncomfortable entirety:

While Irina Shayk took the Sports Illustrated swimsuit cover, Ashley and Chantal killed it during their shoots and gave any of the supermodels a run for their ...

Sorry. As for Michelle, the unstable, sexually aggressive schtick had a good run, but officially ran its course after this. Even Brad came to his senses eventually.

Who do you want to win The Bachelor?
